When it comes to baby showers (& wedding showers), I tend to stick to the registry for gifts. However, for my friend Sarah's baby shower, I made 'cupcakes' for Baby R (in addition to a couple other things I gifted the parents-to-be from their registry). And hey, these are both cute & useful!
I was inspired by these cupcakes, a fun gift idea that I promptly Pinned a few months ago.
|My cupcakes made from onesies & socks.|
I used 0-3 month onesies.
Since Baby R's gender will be a surprise, I went with gender-neutral colors all around. Obviously, the smaller the onesies the easier they are to fit into those baking cups, but I also had in mind that Baby R will be a summer baby--so short-sleeved onesies in this size made sense. Hopefully they'll fit for more than a hot minute; babies grow like weeds.
|Baking cups & cupcake box were from Michael's.|
|I used the sock 'overhang' to contain the rolled onesie. Worked like a charm.|
(Sorry about the grainy pics. My projects are done late at night--not ideal for blog pics.)
Super easy to assemble, useful, & fun. I'm not usually one to give 'cutesy' gifts but I couldn't resist these. Remembering how ferociously hungry I always was whilst prego, I just hoped that the mom-to-be wouldn't be pissed that they weren't real cupcakes. HA!!
Speaking of real, the house the baby shower took place at was really amazing. I was enjoying myself too much to remember to snap a pic of the house itself, but I did get one of the charming poolhouse/pool/backyard where the shower festivities took place (those ironing boards were part of the onesies decorating station).
That pool's just asking for various wine-related rowdy behavior.
"Niles, please remove Freckles Chick from the premises."
It's not my first rodeo.
